One of the UK’s major cities, Liverpool sits at the mouth of the River Mersey and on the shore the Irish Sea. This historic port city is better known for its football teams, world famous music scene and its friendly locals.
Liverpool has a small international airport that is serviced mainly by low cost and budget carriers from select European destinations. The best way to arrive into the city from within the UK is via train and the extensive nationwide network that connects to the city.
WHEN TO GO
To avoid the cold and the wet, we recommend visiting in July or August. However, if you want to get good hotel rates, visit in the winter months. The city is a popular weekend destination for partygoers so week nights are far cheaper.
